  • Health Report Add-In does not allow one to have the reports sent bi-weekly or even monthly. How ridiculous.

    Hourly or Daily only? Seriously?

  • Squuiid.

    You only want a monthly report?  Seriously?  I consider that ridiculous.  I do a daily report all the time.  These are items you want to monitor all the time.

  • Susan,

    Your post is rather short sighted. Why not have the option for all? Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Bi-Weekly, Monthly? Not difficult to code for really...

    And yes, I only need these emailed to me on a bi-weekly basis. I use Windows Server 2012 Essentials as a Windows Home Server and it is hardly mission critical.

  • My post isn't short sighted.

    1.  This is a replacement for the SBS 2008/2011 era health report.  It never was biweekly or monthly.

    2.  "it's easy to code".  No it's not.  A biweekly or monthly summary report would be a sql database.  This isn't.

    3.  If you are using this as a home server, then don't set it up and use instead the 'as needed' alerts that Home Server used to do.  

    I am glad they listened to feedback from MVPs and put this back in.  We asked for an hourly and daily report.
